New dad Mike Eli of the Eli Young Band is just gushing about baby Kline, who arrived July 30.

"When you meet your first child, it's pretty incredible A lot of people try to tell you how it's gonna feel, and you can't really explain it, but it's pretty amazing," he told reporters at a No. 1 party for "Even If It Breaks Your Heart."

And even a No. 1 party can't stop Mike from missing his newborn.

"I miss her. I'm ready to go back home. Not that I don't want to be here, but I do miss—I miss her," he said.

Bandmate Jon Jones teases the new dad: "So, Mike comes on the road to get some sleep now where it used to be the other way around," Jon said.

Adds Mike: "There's not a whole lot of sleep happening in my household these days, but that's a good thing, though."
